Eastern Henrico

Eastern Henrico housing options include a variety of opportunities, from post-WWII homes in Sandston to new construction subdivisions in White Oaks. Although closer to the City of Richmond, Rocketts Landing is also technically situated in Eastern Henrico.

Key Features

Affordable Rural Housing: Situated just east of Richmond, Eastern Henrico offers more affordable housing options for those looking for acreage and room to roam.

RIC: Many of Richmond’s older residents will still refer to old Byrd Field, but the Richmond International Airport is anything but antiquated. More than three million people and 90 million pounds of cargo travel though RIC on six airlines and over 100,000 flights each year.

Nest Picks

Capital Trail

After connecting to the Flood Wall trail at the city limits, the Capital Trail runs for miles through Eastern Henrico all the way to Williamsburg. The trail is protected from Route 5, making it a great option not just for the avid cyclist, but also for families looking for an active outing.

Tidewater Wineries

If you're looking for a lovely place to sip, take a Sunday afternoon drive east into the Hampton Roads wine region. You can sample award-winning wines at both new and established vineyards such as New Kent Winery, Saudé Creek Vineyards, and Gauthier Vineyard. Many tasting rooms offer live music and other events throughout the year, so check social media before you go to plan your perfect wine adventure.

Rocketts Landing

Richmond's urban live - work - play community is right across the City of Richmond border in Eastern Henrico and contains condominiums, townhouses, and elegant riverfront homes. Kayak from the boathouse or have drinks at the Boathouse Restaurant. Stone Brewery's beer garden is just a short walk away.
